Our last little harvest of the year 😢. It is sad, but we honestly had such a great turn out this year! So many pumpkins, carrots, tomatoes, cucumbers, and watermelons just to name a few. Right now we are working on winterizing the garden so our winter crops can stay protected from the harsh Virginia cold. If you are interested in volunteering we are still hosting shifts !

Dear George Mason community! This summer the garden has gotten many visitors and we are so happy that everyone is enjoying the garden♥️

We would like to remind everyone that in order to enjoy the produce that is grown we ask that you volunteer with us. During this summer a lot of our crops have disappeared and our hard working volunteers did not get to reap the benefits. Hey Now this does not mean that you cannot walk through or spend time in the garden we just ask that you volunteer with us if you want to take something home. There is always a lot of work to be done and the help would be greatly appreciated! If you are interested in volunteering with us please feel free to message us. Fall gardening schedules will be posted in the next few weeks. Please let us know if there are any questions or concerns you may have!
